      I have no idea if it is still used, but petrol stations used to check their storage tanks for water contamination with a paste, supplied by the oil company. This green paste was applied to the end of the tank dip stick, the dipstick placed in the tank and immediately pulled back out. Any water contamination would turn the green paste pink.   Regards

      This won't help you one little bit - but it may be of interest. The rotor arm NEVER makes contact with the segments in the cap - The spark jumps the gap, which accounts for the crud that builds up on both surfaces. If the rotor did manage to contact a cap segment, it would most likely shatter the cap.   Regards

      When I built the engine I timed the cam up on the vernier pulley using a clock gauge and crank angle gauge so that side of it is definitely spot on

      possibly a tooth out on the cam ...line it up and post a photo

      MOT failure if a door does not lock/unlock. If there was an accident and you needed to get out etc.   Just opened the door and all locks worked first time. Then the passenger one started to stick again. WD40 on them all but hasn't shifted the passenger one. The garage had to replace the old lock with a complete new one, but the labour took a long time as it was such a complex, drawn out job getting to it hence the cost.   Sorry, I got the cost wrong in my OP.   In 2017 the mechanism was £143 + labour £126
